    After today, it's all historical.

    I have two other sources for heat if the electricity goes off or the gas tank runs empty. Two large kerosene heaters and a small propane tank heater like the one in the article. Had to use all of this in the past when the electricity went off for two days one winter. I managed to keep the living areas fairly warm.

    As far as water goes, I have extra gallons stored up and have a couple of filter straws and a small water distilling set-up.

    I have extra matches and a lot of non-match fire starter items.

    Pretty good article.

    Let's see - no basement so no water barrel. Wood burning fireplace insert (mine ran 24/7 for 13 days in Feb.), portable generator for powering microwave, fridge, 1500 W space heater, furnace blower, catalytic heater that clamps directly to the handle/neck of a 20 lb. tank, white gas camping stove & 2 double mantel lanterns (1 is propane) (light & heat), kerosene lamps, candles of various sizes, 3 kinds of matches as well as multiple butane lighters, homemade firestarters made from dryer lint and paraffin in paper egg carton & cut up and 1 TP tube flattened & folded in half, then stuffed inside another, usually with a paper towel with paraffin on it stuffed in the middle.
    NO cans of Sterno or water filters so I may consider the latter.

    I use dryer lint sprayed with WD-40 and kept in a sandwich baggie. Lights right up as soon as a spark hits it.

    Always wanted a generator but since I'm moving to another state sometime by next fall, can't see getting one right now.
